Dance Performances on Motif No.1 Day in Downtown Rockport

A local school of dance and a professional aerial dance troupe will be performing on Motif No.1 Day, right in the heart of Rockport in Dock Square!

We provide a progressive, versatile curriculum of instruction in a positive learning environment. We cater to students age three through adult, beginner to pre-professional level. Teachers assess students strengths and areas for growth and apply teaching skills in such a way to maximize students enjoyment and help them reach their ultimate potential.

"We do plays on the trapeze; and we've been doing it since 2008. 
That’s the simplest way to put it.  We’re a group of Rocky Mountain-trained MFA-bearing actor/aerialists with a hankerin’ for visceral storytelling, imaginative staging, and a wee bit of irreverence.  We adore Theater and respect its great artists; but we will not hesitate to cut that Shakespeare joke about the “English Kersey” and the “French Velvet” if it’s not funny to a modern audience (Meas 1.ii).  We aim to break open great stories with innovative imagery, and elevate piece’s poetry by literally elevating ourselves."
